How to Assign Estates in Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia

A man’s home is his castle, but some people want an actual castle.

In Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia there is a new system for managing the amount of power and influence characters have within your factions. It’s all about estates and holdings; how very medieval!

Simply put, the more estates you have, the more influence have. However: hoarding estates and not distributing your goods will upset your generals and governors greatly. Here is how to share the wealth and assign estates in Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia.


Assign estates from the faction screen

First things first you need to get the faction screen up by pressing the button on the top right of the campaign screen. Alternatively you can press the ‘8’ key. Once there, navigate to the section titled ‘Governors and Estates’. This will give you a list of characters on the left an a small map of Britain on the left.

Above this mini-map is the option to pick estates. Pressing this will show the locations of all the estates within your faction on the map – they are designated by little scrolls. Scrolls that have a tiny crown above them are estates held by your faction leader.

In order to share some of these out, simply select the estate you wish to hand over, then select the character you wish to hand it to. And voilà, job done.
